Bandsaw plans for sale

I have produced detailed plans for the 16" wooden bandsaw. I love showing off these plans, and have included a preview of the plans so you can get a better sense of what's in the plans before buying.

The plans include:

  • Detailed drawings of every part of the bandsaw
  • A full-scale template of the frame (spread over many pages, with alignment grid)
  • A total of 35 pages of drawings and illustrations
  • Detailed instruction on building the saw, including over 120 photos of the construction
  • More photos of the finished bandsaw
  • The plans also include the SketchUp CAD model of the bandsaw, which allows you to view the bandsaw and parts from any angle. SketchUp is a free, easy to use CAD program.

The plans are in metric units, except for drill and dowel sizes, which are in imperial units. You can generate plans in imperial units simply by changing the units to "imperial" in SketchUp under "model info", but the units will not work out to even numbers like they do in metric.
Please also consider these important safety notes

A French language version of the plans is also available. After buying the plans, you can choose to download the plans in English, French, or both.
